All of Scripture is given to us for “teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness” which, of course, includes the Book of Psalms. We can certainly study the psalms, learn from them, be corrected by them, and be trained by them for righteousness, just like the rest of the Scriptures. But the Psalms are unique – they are the hymnbook of the people of God, and they are meant to be sung. Join us on this exciting journey as we learn to sing the Word!
Each psalm comes equipped with three components to aid in your reflection and worship:
You will find the words to the psalm printed on the screen. As much as possible, every effort has been made by the authors to preserve the original meaning of the text, while translating the message to meter. You’ll notice the corresponding biblical verse numbers to the left of the text.
Each of the tunes listed at the top of the screen has a small “play” button to the left. Selecting this button will play the audio for that tune, in continuous looping fashion until you a) press the button again, b.) press another play button on the page, or c.) exit the page. This allows you to listen to the tune as you read (or sing!) the words to the psalm.
SHEET MUSIC & CHORD CHARTS
Selecting the tune name will reveal the sheet music for that tune. If you select the upper gray portion of that window, you may move the window anywhere you want on the page. If you click anywhere in the large white box, it will open the sheet music in a new window in your browser. Enjoy this resource!
